Video: Foo Fighters Perform Right Across Their Concert Protesters

September 18, 2011, 1:33 pm GMT

Westboro Baptist Church plan to picket the band's show in Kansas City because Dave Grohl and his bandmates are against their view on equality.



Foo Fighters retaliate with the element of surprise. In response of the planned protest of their show in Kansas City by the Westboro Baptist Church, the band have performed right in front of the protesters on the back of a pick-up truck, singing about "hot man-muffins".

They surprised the protesters with their appearance too. Dave Grohl and his bandmates wore beards, wigs and cowboy boots while singing man-to-man romance song called "Keeping It Clean". Before the show began, Grohl sang a phrase, "I've got a hankering for something, think I'm in the mood for some hot man-muffins."

The band then stopped across the street in front of Kansas City's Sprint Centre where the protesters were raising their signs. The scene quickly attracted a crowd of people who mostly cheered at the band. In the middle of the song, Grohl said, "Ladies and gentlemen, God bless America! Land of the free, home of the brave! I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady GaGa or Lady Antebellum, it takes all kinds."

The Westboro Baptists jeered at them throughout the performance but did nothing further because police were present. They planned to picket Foo Fighters's show because the band promoted "fornication, adultery, idolatry and fags."
